Lots of great shows in January as I get back into the rhythm of the night. Here are some video and audio highlights. Also check out my recommendations at the right for these and other shows where you sure to see something good or better.
Northampton, Mass is one of my favorite cities and they are sending us a fun pop-punk band called Potty Mouth, so head on out to the DC9 this Wednesday for the fun.
The extremely interesting Welsh singer songwriter Cate le Bon will bring some great new music to the DC9 on Wednesday, Jan 15th. I'll be there, seeing her for the second time and don't intend to miss any date she is in DC.
Marian McLaughlin has a new album out, a video that NPR featured and a show coming up at the DC9 (yet again) on Thursday, Jan 16th. She is one of my all-time local favorites.
Gipsy Kings hits the Birchmere on Monday, Jan 20th, and is worth the trek south. Trust me... or just watch the video.
Phosphorescent is getting raves for its album and you can see if they live up to it on stage at the 9:30 Club on Wednesday, Jan 22nd.
Waxahatchee is a very hot band, especially with other musicians. See what makes them special at the Black Cat on Friday, Jan 24th.
Damien Jurado makes a return to our city at the DC9 on Sunday, Jan 26th. He's a serious talent as you will see.
Sylvan Esso continues to make the DC9 the place to be in January, this time on Tuesday, Jan 28th.
